Welcome to my blog! I'm Carl Rytterfalk, a swedish photographer who loves everything that is interesting in the world of photography. In 2002 I fell in love with the three layered Foveon sensor and has since then been an addicted user of Sigma cameras. Though I use Canon and Nikon as well. :)

    Joh, this is a big lens! Could you write something about the battery grip? I feel I can hold the SD10 battery grip more stable than the SD14 w/o grip. Of course, it is really a plus in portrait mode…

    It will be interesting to see what you can do with a 50mm 1.4. I have had one for a couple of months and find it difficult sometimes to handle it. It feels too long or too narrow in most situations. I find my self runnin back and forth most of the time.

    I’d love to know where everyone is getting this lens. I’ve been checking B&H and Cameta and I just can’t find it. Are you testing a pre-production copy? (admititly I don’t follow the forum as closely as I should)

  5. Obscura says:

    Oh and I’ve been using vertical grips since the 1980’s. Once you use one you don’t ever want to not use one again. Vertical shutter release additional battery life = win.

    Wow, that’s one big 50mm lens! It must be ginormus compared to it’s macro sibling!

    LMAO that is a BIG THING. But the sharpness and great bokes explains it all :D

    Looks like a beautiful lens. The pictures that you took of your sister are awesome. I just purchased a D300 and I’m not sure if I should get the Nikon 50mm 1.4 D or the Sigma.

    Leaning towards Sigma.

    It’s been awhile now and I’d like to know if your 100% satisfied.

    Thanks,
